yeah ebay australia... i was looking at one tonight as well.
I went to the dimarzio site and there is no sound clip available, and i think it might be one of the discontinued models so thats probably why.

I was looking for a cheap way to make my ibanez grx40 a little classier.
BTW i think those bands use EMGs or Duncans but i think you can get the same thing with the same pickups as what the mid-high end RG's use really.

I have a megadrive on my Ibanez and it sounds swweeeet. DiMarzio has discontinued the model some time ago (god knows why) but you can still order them from musicstore.de (that's where I got mine).

You could get all of those tones with a Duncan Jb and a Jazz. And if you have a shitty amp dont even bother as the amp is 90% of your tone. Pickups arent gonna help a crappy amp.


But in reality god only knows why you would want to sound like any of those bands but hey i still helped anyway

It's nothing like the D-Sonic tonally, it just looks the same.
Actually called Mark!

It's basically a slightly darker Steve's Special (another John Petrucci-style pickup.) I've tried one and I prefered it ever so slightly to the SS, it sounded slightly tighter and less hollow to me. It's very clear with OD just like the SS.

Oh and it's miles better than the POS that is the D-sonic.

Hey there... Digging up an old thread here. I may well buy one now - Did you have the blade towards the bridge or neck? Most reviews seem to say the bridge, but your review is the most helpful I've yet seem... For my needs, anyway. (Big, big JP fan)
